I know it's OK for you to leave your booking till the last minute, you live locally [ if roles were reversed & you were coming to
Europe you'd want to sort out the details early too] but it don't work that way for us, we have to decide now which events to do, all the French
events are advertised with dates etc, booking them is easy we just stay in the Gite/Hotel organised by the French Monoski association [NO core group favouritsm
here]. easy peasy - good accomodation standard, good food, & good value too when you consider the International standard of resorts on offer. If we
don't book the French events now then closer to the event the Gite is normallly full.
Your Aspen event if we are to believe you is the opposite - leave everything till the last minute and hope to snag a
deal - duh - !! You'll have to forgive us for our lack of enthusiasm about that point.
If I'm travelling ~30hours to get to Aspen I want to be sure I have my accomodation sorted, and that certainly doesn't include any
thoughts of sleeping on the floor, at 100bucks/night however 'Up Market' the deep pile carpet or Air mattress maybe perceived as being :-(
I'm on Vacation and need to feel that it's a Vacation standard of accomodation, not a very expensive survival exercise, which is the
vivid picture I have in my mind at the moment of your described Aspen Accomodation expectations.
20-25 Years ago I was a ski-bum, now thankfully I just Mono for the enjoyment - where Enjoyment is
the Operative word, I've never been or wanted to be a survivalist, especially when I'm paying for the privelidge.
Hope this helps your understanding of our predicament
